Will Discuss _7Vlatters Vitally Affecting British Columbia
With World Leader j. Financial Assistance Towards
Development. ^Municipal Finances. Immigration.—
Will Confer With Dominion Authorities at Ottawa.
Sir Richard McBride, Premier ol
British Columbia, leaves this afternoon, for London, Eugland, where he
proposes to present ihe b<'st interests
0i ibe' Province io the financial magnates with a view I" increasing the influx of Uritish capital to thi- part ot
-the Empire. Generally speaking, the
Premier's visit will be taken up with
tins important undertaking, although
other matters of minor importance will
also be discussed. The Premier will bo
accompanied by his secretary Mr. Law
rcii.e M Rae, and iti- expected that
the entire trip will not Btretoh over
more than six weeks.
tm u - v ay to the old country, Sir
Richard will stop over at Montreal and
Ottawa, in order to confer with the
Dominion authorities concerning such
matter-a* ih.. '*i.cti.-t* terms" commis
■ion, and also the greal railway
scheme that is proposed te. link up Al-
aska with iie Mexican oorder. After
concluding his business at these points
thc Premier will entrain tor New Votk
in order *.o connect with the Cunard
liuei  Mauretania a week hen ie.
Alter getting hi- office affairs into
shape yesterday, Sir Richard granted
an Interview, in the course ,,f which
be touched briefly upon the issues that
wei.. calling him to ihe great metropolis at thi- time, and without going
into minute .letail- regarding hi- plans
he ga-.    i. ■ inline of hi-  intentions.

that i- a big question, but 1 shall en-
deuvor t.e answer it in a general way.
Briefly stated, my object is to i;et

ly in the just, and to pave the way
for a Mill greater influx of liriti-'h

th" local development of this -ection
of Empire. Under this head falls tho
que-tioii ot the conditions of the West
em municipalities at this time, and
that applies to Vancouver Island, as
well a- to the Mainland. Municipal fin
mice' is a timely topic, and 1 shall
take it up with the financial interests
in Breat Britain. Don't misunderstand n e een t lii - point, and allege
thingi that are neither right nor fav-
orable fo' as a matter of fact, I view
ih municipal situat ion with an Indulgent e-alm. -nti-lii'd ihat I have no dir

bodies—fur discussing ihi- matter with
tlie moneyed people of the Old Land,

speaking, from all points of view, [
believe that the matters now to Iw
discussed can best be disposed of by
my presence in London. There ari a
great many affairs also, in these days
of tremendous Provincial expansion,
thai can only be rightly recognized by
a full consideration of their merits at
the money centres, and, of course, the
money centre tp us here in British
Columbia  is  Loudon.
"Emigration is another mutter thai
shall have my close attention. 1 shall
confer with the Hon. J. H. Turner,
Agent-General for the province, in re -
Ltai'el to lhi-1 matter and see what steps
call be taken to have the emigration
t.e this part of Canada more highly
systematized than it is at present. I
shall discuss with him the question of
appointing a commercial agent to represent th' province. This ^question was
biought up some time ago, and has
been received with considerable favor
bo far.
" 1 may also say that on my way
there I shall slop at Ottawa an 1 probably Montreal, in ordt'r to take up
with lhe federal authorities, certain
matters affecting the joint interests of
the two governments. On.' of the topics will be that of the "better terms"
commission, which I desire lo pee on
the Coast and in active Besfciou o.-i
soon as possible, and another will
doubtless* be' that of the proposed rail
way to connect, by British Columbia,
the boundary of Alaska with the boun
dary of Mox'no. That project is still
in an immature condition, but 1 am
a lirm believer in it, and hope to be
able to impress something of its importance and value lo Western develop
ment. upon the Ministers of the Federal  government.

Kire totally consumed the West
Kootenay Steam Laundry and the
dwelling of the manager Mr. 12, Bar-
raclough this morning.
It seems that about 2:3U a.m., Mrs.
Barraclough who is alight sleeper was
awakened hy lhe crackling of fire.
She at owe Woke Mr. Barraclouuh who
miw that the Hames hud trained such
headway the saying of the h.undry
was out of the question. He lirst took
the 'hildren and his wife toa neighbors hou.se for safety.
He next tried to reach the telephone
in Ihe laundry o.lh-e, but the imoke
drove him lack. He th n ran in his
bare feet down to Fourth itreet fire
a!,nm l*oi No. 17, and gave the alio m  from there.
By this time the entire itruotun Wftl
enveloped in flames and saving any
thing was out of the question.
The lire brigade arrived in duo course
and   did   good  Work in  ns  far as   they
could, but the flrery fiend had got too
much headway before they arrhi-d.
LOSS  S16.000.
The total loss is estimated at 816,
(XIO, while there was only about 85,0110
worth of in^irance.
Like most of these big nocturnal
blazes, the cause is unknown. Mr.
Barraclough says that at 5:30 in the
evening all was well and the i'n out
no siirn of anything lo cnu*e alarm all
evening. He cannot imagine whal
caused this conflagration.
The clothes, lhat is wearing apparel
of the faintly, were save*!, although

Mr. Barraclough speaks in very
high terms of the manner in whi.-h
many cltieens a-sisted in saving the
clothes anil  other  small furniture. Hc.
Despite the Balkan war, the German
scare and the Buffragettea, Great
Britain is thriving in a n.o-i decided
manner, according to the Hou. Thomas
Taylor. Minister of Public "Works, who
return'd from London, England, yesterday. The Minister left the capital
in June to attend the annual convention of the International Good Road*
Association, and during his stay there
has had an opportunity ot studying
conditions in a manner that does not
come to everyone, and consequently
his lommeuts upon the prevailing situation come with a freshness that is
often lacking iu such accounts.
Upon the general condition of the Old
Lund the Minister of Public Works cx-
press&d himself as surprised and pleased. "I hail thought," he said, " 'rom
the pessimistic accounts that Oreat
Biiiuin must be on the wane and that
ihe war dogs of Europe were merely
developing an adequate appetite to
plunge in upon her and devour her;
but when I tot there and made a st'i*-
vey of the situation and looked into
things a bit closely. 1 came to the
conclusion that Great Britain never
was so prosperous and that her prosperity never waa so widely spread
throughout the populace. Why. the
volume of business that is transacted
there todny in excess of the last lew
years, is amazing and from all ac -
lounts it is still on the increase in -
-tend of on the decrease. Business dose
not seem to be seriously affected by
the political situation at all. Europe
is „ll agog over th. Balkan scramble,
but business in Great Britain goes on
booming as if nothing were happening
And, as for decadence, why there ls r.o
such thing. The country li in a splen
didly vital condition.
"I remainded in London for a considerable time attending to my soveri.l
duties and, consequently, I camo in
contact with many phases of activity
and one of the most Interesting things
I encountered was the genernl interest
that was expressed regnrdlng iiitlih
Columbia. I think I may say without
exaggeration that more people are enquiring about this province than any
other in the Dominion, and it is not
only on my authority when I extend
that remark to cover thc whole of the
Overseas Dominions. The people f met
were engaged in all "kinds of Industrial
pursuits and all of them were Lsenly
interested in the development of Canada. With a number of them I Bpokd
cn intimate Canadian questions, and
Was invariably i    prosse I  with "lis,!
of their disappointment at our reoout
action regarding the nival proposals,
In every other way, however, the peo
pie of the Old Country are deeply interested in all th;lt concerns thc welfare of this country, and in a ne.*es-
,'arily limited way, are alive to th-j
great issues that throb the Domin -
ion's pulse.
"Of course I met the Hon. J.H. Turner, agent-general, and with him 1 had
the pleasure of going over the plans
for the proposed new British Colum -
bia building. I may say that though
these plans are still Uncompleted, having yet to be approved by the County
Council, th<ey represent a very imposing structure. I also paid a visit to
ihe si Ui of the building, which is ofa
the corner of Regent street and Waterloo Place, a very central location, as
all those who know London at all ap-
preciaie. The liuililin; whieh is being
constructed on the commission basis,
will be commenoed al an enrly date,
and in ft comparatively short time visitors from the province will be able
io call thero and attend to aflaira that
might prove .difficult of disposal for
the sinmrer elsewhere in the great
city. When it is stated that it in intended to spciwl the enormous sum of
$.100,000 upon the structure somo idea
of its size and <lesign mav he imagined. It will rise to a height of Beven
stories. The ground floor, will bo used for the Provincial offlceB, the re -
mainder being  let   for private  offices."
Coming to a discussion of the business that callod bim to London, the
Hon. Mr. Taylor said that the International Highways Convention called
together representatives from all tho
countries of Europe, America and all
tho provinces of Cnnadn. "It was a
splendid gnthering," he said, "and ono
that must hftVe done a great deal of
good, for aa you know, road-building
in this country is a matter of pre-eminent (importance and lt is only natural to suppose that it is so in .,n equal
measure in other countries also. The
probloms of road-building and main -
tenance     wero  discussed by tho mosl

News in Brief
Governor Colquitt was provided lust
week with what purports to be reliable information that Col. Theodora
Roo.-'evi'lt quietly bus organized four
regiments of eavalry of tbe rough
rider type, composed of trained riders
nnd marksmen of Arizona, New Mexico and Western Texas. Jt is alleged
the real purpose of Col. Roosevelt's
present visit to the southwest is to
direct the selection of men for a miii-
, lary division and that he soon will
have it in'readiness to/enter Mexico
I in the event of hostilities with tbat
'country. The report says further that
Col. Roosevelt is tarrying on his work
witli the' knowledge and sanction of
tbe United States war department. Ho
will be placed in command of the brigade if war Ebould  iome,  it is said.
The Ottawa Evening Free Press contains n report to the effect that Col -
(iml W.G.G. Gwatkin *haB been ap -
pointe'd chief of staff in succession to
Major General C. J. MacKenzie.
Though GenMi*ul MacKenzie is gen •
erally understood' here to have retired
from the position some months ago,
military orders state he is oil leave of
absence for four months, liis term of
office expiring in tlie fall. Questioned
rn the report of his BUcoession, Colonel i
Hughes, Minister of Militia, merely
called attention to the matter that he
'Was granted a leave of abftenco. "You
may say, however, said the minister,
I "that if everything 'goes along satisfactorily as it is at present, Colonel

Control   Your   Coal
In the Gurney-Oxford range you will find
more exclusive features, more essential improvements that appeal to the thrifty housewife than
have ever before been found in any one kitchen
But most important of all is the Economizer.
This Jclever device for regulating the drafts
saves 1 ton of coal in every 6 that you would
burn in the ordinary range. It takes the smell of
cooking out of the kitchen and sends it up the
chimney.   You  know what that means.
The Economizer enables you to absolutely
control thc amount of coal you wish to consume and still have a perfect heat for cooking.
It will enable you to keep your fire going
while you go out shopping or visit your neighbor, and all that is necessary for you to do
on your return is to press thc small lever and
you are assured of a hot fire in a very few moments.
A Gurney-Oxford stove is sanitary—no dirt
can accumulate on its beautifully smooth surface.
Its top is polished steel which abolishes forever that dreadful operation — blacking thc stove.
Of paramount interest also are the other
remarkable and exclusive attachments the
Special Grate, the Divided Flue and thc Broiler.
Every woman who knows owns a Gurney-
so promptly and perfectly as you are
at this restaurant. And lhe service is
only a foretaste ol
It is said that the way tb n man's
In-art is through liis Btomach. We are
gure tn reach yours if you'll drop in
and try our bill of fare. If perfect victuals,   perfectly   cooked   and   perfectly
served,   vvill   Kain   yenr   friendship,    we
are absolutely sure e>f yours.
